  1. Need help..how much would you pay for Rockets RS 760s and RS 750s? A local is selling

    Home Audio Speakers
    Well...he replied to an ad I posted asking about AV123 Rockets so that puts me on a disadvantage I guess since I was the one looking to buy but we are both stuck not willing to bring up any pricing so far. I am mostly interested in the 760s as I have 760s fronts already. He is also interested in...

  3. RS SPL Meter Accuracy

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    The spec sheet for the meter shows +/-2dB accuracy. Is that correct? That doesn't seem great. I don't see a mention of a cal file or curve. Thanks.

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Hello guy's, I have to get rid of my infinity's they are too big with the subwoofer and all. And I want surround so I need bookshelves to accommodate the quality of the infinity for around $200 a pair. Is this a valid option?

  6. Analog RS SPL meter correction table

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I was looking for the table on the download page but got "no results for my search". Can anyone help? Supposedly (from reading a post here) the table here is supposed to be more accurate (relatively speaking) than those found elsewhere. Thanks!
  7. REW and RS SPL Meter (new 2055)

    REW Forum
    I have a small home recording studio, and I have a couple of newbie questions about using REW with a RS SPL meter. I have a newer Radio Shack 2055 digital meter. It's the newer grey model with a rubberized grip and a windscreen. I can't post a link, but a quick search on the Radio Shack website...
  8. RS Digital 2055 / RS 33-2055

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hi all, If anyone is familiar with these your input would be appreciated. I have a newer RS digital spl meter which states the model is simply "digital 2055." This is obviously different from the RS digital spl 33-2055 which has its own cal file on this site. My question is, can I use the...

  10. Is the RS meter "good enough"?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I'm getting back into REW after quite some time not fiddling with my system. The no of mics available seems to have exploded somewhat in the intervening time so I'm left wondering whether the RS meter can still be considered "good enough" for home use? i.e. subwoofer eq (currently BFD but likely...
  11. Another Newbie question: RS SPL meter enough for sub integration or do I need Behringer ECM8000?

    REW Forum
    Hi, Audyssey seems to set my sub (JTR Cap S2) 6-10 dbs lower than the rest of the speakers (JTR Quintuple LCRs, Def Tech BPVX surrounds, Def Tech SM 450 Front Heights). Over the weekend I am planning to use REW to analyze and manually level match them (and also try pre-setting the sub to 75 db...

    DIY Speakers
    I am looking to build one of the speaker systems in the header. I would like to get some feedback from any of you on the forum that have experienced either of these. Also any links you may know of would be greatly appreciated.
  13. Inexpensive replacement for the old RS SPL meter

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hey guys, The old RS Analog SPL meter is acting up and I need to replace it for just basic level matching. I already own a Dayton mic etc for full REW measurements etc. I know the Galaxy 140 gets mentioned a lot but its over $100. anything a bit cheaper that fits the bill? Thanks, Brandon
  14. Model 33-2050 RS Cal file

    REW Forum
    Hello, I'm new to the group, just getting REW set-up on my laptop, am going to use the old model RS sound meter, Model 33-2050. I'm mostly concerned with the lower frequencies, out of curiosity I opened the cal file using wordpad, I saw the value for 20hz was - 17.04, 16hz was - 20.63, both...
  15. RS meter #33-099

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hi, The only sound level meter that I see on the Radio Shack site is #33-099. Will this work with REW or would I be better off finding one of the meters shown in the help file (33-2050, 33-4050, 33-2055)? Thanks, Steve
  16. Using a RS SPL meter with a TASCAM US122MKII soundcard?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Can I use my RS SPL meter as a microphone with the TASCAM external soundcard? I eventually intend to purchase a calibrated EMM6 microphone, but I wanted to start doing measurements with my trusty SPL meter first. I'm mostly interested in optimizing my subwoofer placement, so I don't yet need...
  17. DSP1124, input level with RS SPL

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hello, I’ve read the bfd guides and tried to set up the DSP1124. Everything works fine, but I have one “problem”. The radioshack analog SPL delivers a response at 114dB. But it is not really 114dB – the noise is to low. The REW use correction with over 30dB for all filters and I have to set the...

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Anyone experienced a successful repair of RS SPL 33-2050 (It's a TRUE Realistic RS model)? Here's the tests I have done: - Battery check functions as normal. - Slow/Fast response function works as indicated by the battery test. - Disassembled meter and cleaned all solder points (they weren't...
  19. Plug RS Meter directly into MacBook Pro

    REW Forum
    Looking at the Apple website, my Macbook Pro can take a line level input through the line-in input. Has anyone had any luck plugging a Radio Shack meter directly into this input without using an external sound card? I don't have the money for a nice condensor mic and a phantom power sound card...
  20. RS disclaimer at bottom of web pages??

    Community Help
    What's up with the RS disclaimer at the bottom of the web pages?? I saw them recently and now am curious to the background how/why they are there. I did a search on "RadioShack" here and nothing came up related to the disclaimer explaining.....I could guess but prefer not to.
